Maurya East Indian Roti in Mimico -- Some of the best Toronto has to offer!

Maurya East Indian Roti is, quite simply, superb.

Located in an unassuming strip mall in the heart of Mimico, Maurya serves up some of the very best rotis Toronto has to offer -- West or East Indian!

Wrapped in a perfectly made roti, the menu provides a terrific array of vegetarian and non-vegetarian options. All are excellent, with rich sauces and complex flavours.

The heat level in the spicing is as you request it. Mild will be exactly that, whilst a request for hot or spicy will be fiery but not overpoweringly so.

Stand-outs include the Chicken or Lamb Vindaloo Roti (marvelously tangy and hot), the basic Lamb or Chicken Curry Roti (that comes with potato and is a great deal at $8.95) and the Mixed Vegetable Korma Roti -- though everything we have tried there has been great.

Note that on the menu below the vegetarian options outnumber the meat options!

If you want something a little less rich and a little lighter, the Eggplant and Potato Roti is a very filling and tasty option and is also a steal at $7.95.

The Samosas are top-notch and make for a perfect side or take-out snack.

Maurya has several tables and you will generally be able to get a seat, but it is also located right next to the charming waterfront Amos Waites Park -- a lovely spot to eat outside on a nice day. Mimico, one of Toronto's historic waterfront communities with a number of lakeside parks as well as a newly expanded path connecting them, is well worth a visit anyway, and the 501 Queen streetcar will take you right to Maurya's front door at the foot of Mimico Ave.

The Lamb Curry Roti $8.95
The Aloo Gobi Roti (Cauliflower & Potato) $7.95

Maurya East Indian Roti is located at 2481 Lakeshore Blvd. W. at Mimico Ave. and Lakeshore. 647-748-6001. It is a casual/take-out style restaurant with no reservations though you can call ahead to pick-up your order. It is not licensed.
